Susan asks… How much power does the solar panel produce? I have a panel that “deep breathe” produces at 41% efficiency, what can it power, It’s about 4ft by 2ft ssadmin answers: Area is 4′ * 2′ * (0.3048m/ft)^2 = 0.743m^2. Incoming solar (assuming optimally oriented panel) averages about 1kW/m^2, so 743W max gross. 41% […]
